Swapping books for the bomb factory takes courage – and could be dangerous.
Working at the Foyles bookshop was Molly Cooper’s dream job. But with the country at war she’s determined to do her bit. So Molly gathers her courage, and sets off for the East End and her first day working at Silvertown munitions factory…
It’s hard manual labour, and Molly must face the trials and tribulations of being the ‘new girl’ at the munitions factory, as well as the relentless physical work.
The happy-ever-afters Molly read about in the pages of her beloved books have been lost to the war. And yet the munitions girls unite through their sense of duty and friendships that blossom in the most unlikely of settings…
Perfect for fans of Elaine Everest, Daisy Styles and Rosie Hendry.
Look out for the next in the Elaine Roberts’ heartwarming series The Foyles Girl, Christmas at the Foyles Bookshop, coming soon!
Wonderfully Warm Wartime Read!
Having enjoyed the first in this series, I’ve been keeping and eye on this one nearing the top of my tbr list and – as expected – it delivered everything I thought it would … and more!
Once again we are immersed in the lives of Molly, Alice and Victoria, to find Molly about to leave Foyles Bookshop to do some serious, and dangerous, war work. Determined to maintain their close friendship, the girls have to work harder at keeping in touch once they don’t see each other at work. But little did they know what was in front of them . . .
As always, Elaine Roberts paints a picture of friendship, family and really shows the spirit of ‘we’re all in it together’. This novel encompasses such a lot, and does it beautifully. The characters come alive on the page, the warmth and love shines through and there is adversity a-plenty. A fantastic sequel, and I can hardly wait to see where the next one takes us. Highly recommended read, especially if, like me, you are fond of books set in the domestic side of WWII.
